Sparkle & Shine: Holiday Outfit Post 2

More sparkle & shine holiday style coming atcha!!!  Although, it doesn’t feel very Christmasy outside today because it is 70 degrees!  Spring like weather in December is kind of putting a damper on my wanting to wear winter clothing, but I’m going to share anyways.  I think this may end up being my New Years Eve choice but you could wear it for a Christmas party just as easy.

The Look:

I love this all sequin dress from the Express outlet (also comes in black).  The back has a cut out on the upper portion so gives it a classy sexy look.  Add a black blazer if you’re going to an office party or a black moto jacket if you want to add some edge.  Pair this dress with gold or silver strapy heels (depending on your mood or jewelry choice) or with black tights and booties (which is probably how I’ll wear it NYE).  Black stilettos are also a great choice.  This is how I styled it for you on this 70 degree day.




Shop the look:

  • Express Factory Outlet sequin dress- (In stores only)  Similar online here, here or here
  • Vintage 1950’s ivory/gold clutch-via from a vintage boutique called Polly and Bandit.
  • Bronze/Gold heels- Similar here


Chloe + Isabel Jewelry- Purchase exact here  (Apply code FFHOL15 for 25% off all orders until 12/15/15)

  • Midnight Palace Statement Necklace- (SKU #N368)
  • Midnight Palace Drop Earrings- (SKU #E317)
  • Forever 21 bracelet pictured- Similar C +I Jet Octagon Stone Bracelet (SKU #B292)

How would you style a sequin dress?

Sparkle & Shine: Holiday Outfit Post 1

I absolutely LOVE this time of year!  I love all the Christmas lights, the movies (doesn’t get any better that It’s a Wonderful Life), the ugly Christmas sweaters, a fire in the fireplace curled up with a good book, hot cocoa or wine, all the SHOPPING…I could go on and on, but one of my favorite things is dressing up!  Whether it be for a party, night out with the girls or date night, any excuse to “sparkle & shine”.

I wore this ensemble over the weekend to dinner with the hubby and some friends.  I mixed textures and metals together to create this holiday look.

Winter 2015 Target Haul

It’s sweater weather time y’all and Target is having a huge sweater sale going on right now!!!  Below are pieces I recently picked up to add to my winter collection:


  • Mossimo Open Poncho- (exact here)
  • Mossimo Poncho Pullover- (exact here)
  • Merona Chenille Open Cardigan- (exact here berry purple).  Available Colors: BlackDrizzle Grey/BlackHeather GreyRio RoseSour Cream & Tea Cup Blue


  • Merona Tunic Sweater (Exact here).  Available Colors: BlackBronzeGreenHeather Blue, Heather GreyOatmeal Heather, & Purple.  


I love tunic sweaters.  They are super comfortable and easy to style.  Especially on those lazy days when you don’t want to put a lot of thought into an outfit.  Throw it on with leggings and boots and pair it with a chunky scarf or long pendant necklace and out the door you go.



  • Mossimo Flannel Plaid Shirts:

(Black & White exact here.)  (Merona Green & Black exact here.)  (Red/Blue plaid exact here.)


I’m really into flannel/plaid this year.  You can dress flannel up by adding a statement necklace (like this Morningtide Convertible Collar necklace pictured below.  Purchase here SKU # N230) and pair it with a black or leather pencil skirt and heels.  If you’d rather keep them more casual pair with skinny jeans or leggings and boots.


They make great layering pieces too.  Wear them under sweaters or over tank tops or graphic tee’s.   Hmmm….I think I just inspired myself to do a “how to wear flannel” post.  Be on the lookout!!


How cute is this vest?!  I have NOTHING like this in my closet so I thought it would be a great addition.  I think it will be a great layering piece for both dressy and casual outfits.

  • Mossimo Cropped Faux Fur Vest- (Exact here)


For a casual look add on top of a flannel shirt with jeans and pair with booties.

For a dressy look add-on top of a dressy button down or chambray shirt and pair with leather leggings and heels.  Can also be worn with a dress or skirt.
